What the actual fact? The Daily Show probes Trump’s ‘alternative facts’

On Monday’s Daily Show, Trevor Noah and correspondent Desi Lydic broke down the facts about Donald Trump’s “alternative facts.” After Trump’s press secretary claimed the inauguration crowd was bigger than it actually was, Kellyanne Conway declared the claim was based on “alternative facts.” No one was buying it. “I like that she can taste the bullshit in her mouth,” Noah said. “You can tell she’s lying because right after she says it, she tries to casually flip her hair afterwards like she’s all chill.”

As part of her recurring “What the Actual Fact?” segment, Desi Lydic found ways to support Trump’s claims. “A lot of people left early because, as Trump predicted, they got tired of winning,” she said. “Another alternative fact: You just couldn’t see Trump’s crowd because they were wearing polar bear skins.” Watch the clip for more.
